St Joseph’s College is a Catholic 7-12 high school operated by St Joseph’s Parish, Tweed Heads, assisted by the Lismore Diocese Catholic Education Office.
SJC works closely with its parents and the community to fulfill the important role of educating the youth of the Tweed Heads region. Our motto, ‘Peace through Justice’ is modified from Pope Pius XII’s motto ‘Opus Justitiae Pax’ – The work of justice is peace. This original motto was taken up in 1939 at the outbreak of World War II. The motto transcends the circumstances of those times to inspire each of us through significant effort in our personal lives, to establish community at local and international levels. The dove of peace reinforces this message.
“Act Justly & Walk Humbly”
The 29th Commencement of St Joseph’s College took place on February 11, with the theme “Act Justly & Walk Humbly”.
We were blessed to have Bishop Gregory Homeming O.C.D. in attendance who addressed the community at the conclusion of the mass.
We welcome all new students and members of the community and parish for 2021.

Jersey Day 2020
The Jersey Day campaign is an annual event on the Australian calendar, which took place this year on Friday 4 September. Jersey Day is all about raising awareness and starting conversations around organ donation. Students and staff at St Joseph’s College were invited to be involved in this day by wearing a jersey, or similar, of their favourite sporting team to school.
It was great to see those students and staff who chose to support this cause. In particular, thanks to Mrs Maria Van Vliet who bravely shared some of her personal story with the College regarding her experiences with organ donation. Thanks also to Mr Yager and the Year 12 students who were involved in the organisation of, and participated in, the Year 12 code versus code competition at lunch.
For further information about Jersey Day and organ donation please visit jerseyday.com.au.
